I'm off to bed, so I'll thank all of you good and generous people for your suggestions. Great list, strat! Judging only from setlists, it looks like we have similar tastes. And comparing contributions, I'm encouraged by the number of shows that have been moved and seconded.

All of that said, if anyone else cares to weigh in, I'd love to hear your opinions!

Most excellent suggestions from everyone. It's hard to go wrong with shows from April. If you don't mind mp3s, David Lemieux has released all but about 6 six songs from 5-05 at the Tapers Section over the past few weeks, plus the mind blowing Let It Grow from 5-14. A very strong show that has previously only been available as an Audience.

If you grab 4-12, highly recommended, check out the text notes (that is when GDLive comes back up). An excellent read as you listen to the show.

one watch by night one watch by day - thats why the earth is being made round

01-22, disc 3 especially, terrapin > drums > too > close encounters > st. stephen > a & a is in my opinion one of the best pieces of music ever played. top 10 ever def

dp 18 - fantastic

egypt shows (all 3 of them 09-14,15,16), considering the circumstances, are a must have for any self respecting deadhead. the difference in sound being surely the result of enormous quantities of highest quality smoke they inhaled in the shadow of sphinx

10-21 & 22 - both superb shows

12-31 - grate show

so, despite the very disappointing studio album, 78 was a grate year. i even prefer it to 77, which sounds (now, not then) just too polished to this ears
